As-Salaam Alaykum - السلام علیکمPrograms to be held at 81 Hollinger Crescent (IHS Centre) for this week are as follows:
1) On Thursday, March 30th (2nd or 3rd night of Rajab) we will be commemorating the Shahadat of the 10th Imam, Imam Ali un Naqi al-Hadi, peace be upon him, and holding the Shabe Jumu'ah program.  Program will begin at 7:15pm (please note time) with the recitation of Surah Yaseen, Dua Kumayl,  Salatul Maghribain in Jama'at at prime time,  marthiya, Majlis by Shaykh Shafiq Hudda, and ending with the Ziyarat-e-Waritha. Refreshments to follow.  
Due to the fact that Thursday night could be the 2nd or 3rd of Rajab, it will coincide with the Shahadat of the 10th night, thus we will mark his Shahadat on this night and we will celebrate the wiladat of the 5th Imam, which is on the 1st of Rajab next week with the other wiladats, Insha-Allah.
Please note: There will not be a kids class this week.

Please note that this Thursday is Laylatul Raghaa'ib, please see below for the recommended a'maal for this day/night.

Laylatul Raghaa'ib(Wishes'Night) The firstThursday of Rajab


Thursday, March 30th, 2017


It is related that a person who recites Surah-al Yaseen before going to bed & Salaat for Laylatul Raghaa'ib will be saved from the terror of the grave.

The first Friday night of Rajab is known as Laylatul Raghaa'ib. The Holy Prophet Muhammad (saws) used to fast on the first Thursday & between Maghrib & Isha recite 12 Rak’at namaz in six sets of 2 units. In every Rak’at after Surah al Hamd, recite 3 times Surah al-Qadr, & 12 times Surah al-Ikhlaas. After salaam of the last Rak'at:

recite 70 times:

O Allah send blessings on Muhammad, the Ummi Prophet, and on his descendants.

Allahumma s’ale a’laa muh’ammadin nabiyyil ummi wa a’laa aaleh.

Then go into sajdah & recite 70 times:

Holy and most Holy is the Lord of the Angels and spirts.

subbuh’un quddoos rabbul malaaaekate war-rooh’

Then sit erect & say 70 times:

O Lord! Forgive, have mercy and be indulgent about that which Thou knows well, verily Thou art Sublime, Mighty.

rabbighfir war-ham watajaawaz a’mma ta’lamo innaka antal a’liyyul a’zeem.

Then go into sajdah & say 70 times:

Holy and most Holy is the Lord of the Angels and spirts.

subbooh’un quddoos rabbul malaaekate war-rooh’.



Please, DO NOT Forget, IMAM MAHDI(saws) From your Supplications(DUA'A) 


It is most important, however, that none of you should neglect the First Friday in Rajab, for it is the night that the angels call the Night of [the Granting of] Wishes [Lailat ar-Ragha'ib]. This is because, by the time the first third of the night has elapsed, there will not be a single angel still at large in the heavens, nor in any region of the earth bar one. They will all be gathered together in the Ka'ba and the area immediately surrounding it.

Allah (Exalted is He) will condescend to notice that they have assembled there, and He will say: "My angels, ask Me for whatever you wish!" Their response to this will be: "Our Lord, the request we wish to make is that You grant forgiveness to those who faithfully keep the fast in Rajab," whereupon Allah (Exalted is He) will tell them: "That I have already done!"


2) On Friday, March 31st (2nd or 3rd day of Rajab) there will be Salatul Jumu'ah to begin at 1:30pm led by Shaykh Shafiq Hudda.

Introduction to Islam

Dennis Wholley meets Imam Hassan Qazwini, leader of the Islamic Centre in Dearborn, Michigan, to discuss the fundamental beliefs of Islam, and remove any misconceptions the general public may have. Many  Non-muslims have the idea that the Islamic clerics and leaders are hostile and unapproachable, however Dennis Wholley shows that the Islamic leaders (Imams) are normal people like you and I, striving for a better future for upcoming generations.
